To the editor:

PacRim Coal LLC will be at ComFish this week spreading a tall tale: that it can build a new salmon stream after 25 years of intensive strip mining at the Chuitna coal mine on the west side of Cook Inlet. If PacRim has discovered some miraculous new technology to build new salmon streams, it would surely be more profitable for it to restore the decimated runs in the Pacific Northwest. Until then, it makes no sense to set a dangerous precedent experimenting on wild Alaska salmon habitat just so a couple of Texas investors can make a buck selling coal to China.
